The glory of Christmas 28: ski or sleigh

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 28: ski or sleigh.  I used AKV snowman ski 2 by Bugaboo Stamps - I love the simplicity of this and decided that colouring his hat and carrot nose was enough. The blue card with white spots is a scrap left over from some Hunkydory card used earlier in the week. The snowdrifts were created with torn offcuts of card that had been embossed with an Embossalicious folder and the eBosser. The sentiment was generated on computer and printed.
